Spinach, Like You Have Never Had

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mummamills

My good friend Bev cooked this one day at a friends place. She had never been a spinach fan. Whole new way to look at the old "silver beet" which is a brother to the more insipid English spinach. Can be a breakfast dish with a few eggs, luncheon with a sprinkle of cheese, or side dish. Anything a little different is nice for a change :)

Divine (or is that DEVINE?) mumma made this for us for brunch this morning topped with her own home grown poached eggs. What a fantastic way to start the day.
